Recently returned from a visit to Malvern & Hot Springs Area.. Here are a few shots taken here & there... made a stop at the Diamond Crater on the way back to Texas... no luck for me, but two others hit pay dirt that day! I still have a LOT more that I need to convert from RAW (very SLOW process on my little lap top) - but as I do a little at time, I'll stop back in for some more posts!

Went out to Black Bass Lake Saturday morning. It was overcast to begin with, even got sprinkled on a little bit, but at the end the sun started peaking through. This was the original water supply for Eureka Springs, apparently, but was abandoned over fifty years ago. They've recently established a couple of hiking trails (easy) around the lake and are working on developing a park.

That dam looks a little tired of holding back all that water. Recon it's still good for another 50 years?

I believe the dam was actually built in 1907. Evidently, it was used as a community swimming hole and picnic area in the early part of the 20th century, but then the town went to a well system and the lake was abandoned. I went on a Saturday morning and there wasn't another soul around (unless bugs have souls, because there were lots of bugs). As I was finishing the walk, ran into another person out with their dog, and saw another gentleman getting into a spot to do some fishing. No houses around the lake, only one way in, just completely peaceful.

Sounds great! The area around Eureka is replete with hidden gems like that. I used to work for the Army Corp of Engineers at Table Rock and they once loaned me out to the power plant at Beaver Dam. I stayed in Eureka and fell in love with both the place and its people.

Absolutely! I love Lake Leatherwood, and Beaver, but they aren't really hidden. I'd never heard of this lake until last week, and I did a little research then headed out Saturday morning. Lots of the trails in the area are at their best in the winter and fall, but this, I think, is a summer trail. Next weekend am planning to do the War Eagle Trail.
